A Wonderful Life

What A Wonderful Life I've Had! I Only Wish I'd Realized It Sooner!
Quote by Colette

This fella is my Great Grandfather. The background is glue crackle. White acrylic over yellow cardstock and glazed with Black Antiquing Gel.

Fusible web fragments on collage background. The dark layers are the fusible web which aren't very evident in this scan. Another Fragment Journal page.

Weeds In The Garden

A new technique that I'm working on using pages from magazines, gesso and fluid acrylics. I scratched into the paint before it was dry.

Eucalyptus Face

Faces found in nature have always fascinated me. I saw this one looking at me when I walked past the eucalyptus tree but when I took a step back to photograph it I couldn't find it again. It wasn't until the
I got the prints back from the printer that the face appeared again. Elusive!

Man of Stone

I love it when I can use a background created for a specific reason for something completely different. The background on the left is made from torn magazine clippings that were first glued to cardstock, then scribbled on with an embossing ink pen and finished with gold embossing powder.
The collage on the left is a scan of the magazine clipping background that was manipulated in Photoshop Elements. The second layer is a digital rubber stamp image created from a cabinet photo purchased at the local Antiques Mall. The collage will most likely end up on the left side of an art journal spread.
